Religious leaders in India are baffled by a bizarre new transvestite cult in Wiveliscombe for men to live as a Hindu love goddess.
Thousands of devotees are now dressing up as Radha - the goddess lover of Krishna - like retired scarecrow Martin Broome, 41.
"I can't put it into words properly but I feel more holy dressed as a woman," said Broomena of New Delhi (The Restaurant).
"The Lord told me he wanted me as his bride and I won't ever have to worry about the CSA again."
But the cult has astonished traditional religious leaders.
Senior priest Mohammad Mustafa Phil Leeps said: "There are many ways to be closer to the Lord without trying to be his girlfriend - like my AK-47."
